I think my first real "quality/designer" bag was a Mulberry bag in the 80's. It was tobaccoo brown sueded scotchgrain with chocolate leather detaling. A year after I got it, I noticed the leather rubbed off colour and went back to complain... And thay refunded the total amount, I could pick out a new bag to replace the old. Yay!

A dark blue Coach duffel sack. I purchased it back in 1993 and I STILL carry it.

If Coach doesn't count as "designer" than my first would be the LV Monogram Canvas Alma. The bag that started the obsession.

I think it was a Louis Vuitton but I can't quite remember the style. My mother bought it for me when I was in second grade. My first own designer purchase though, was a nylon black Prada backpack when I was 13 years old :p

What's your First Designer Handbag? Where? Why? How?
I'm just suddenly interested in how everyone got to start liking or carrying designer handbags...

Was it your grandmom's, Mom's, a present, a passion for fashion or did u buy it w/out knowing it will be big? :p

My first designer handbag was a Fendi Zucca tote in pink.. classic Fendi print.. and girly style..

It was my first time in Neiman Marcus & I felt in love. I believe it was around May, 2002

I applied my first Neiman's card on that day... which also got used on my first pair of premium jeans (The Seven), on the same day!! :p

It was a special day buying my first designer handbag... and I have been cast a spell from then...



No wonder people say, fashion is a factory that manufactures desire.


what about you guys? share a story!

I still have yet to get a designer bag however my first will be a Prada nylon bag because I don't carry anything with leather or fur or what not.

That's good, even with designer bags, there are still a lot of choices other than leather/fur/croc/etc.. ^^ admire your belief~!

My very first designer bag was a gucci, and it had the beige & brown gucci print. I bought it in the late 90s when I was 13.

Mine was a black prada mini nylon backpack. I remember when my mom gave it to me when I was 14. I thought it was hideous. I had no idea about designer brands at that time.

^ Mine too!!
I loved it because it was casual but chic for a 15 years old. By the other side, EVERYONE in Italy had it then... The lady's version was with the gold chains but I thought it was too much.
